Re: Copper Spice on M1 Mac

Thank you for your interest in CopperSpice. We appreciate your willingness to test this, it will benefit the project. As a first step, I would recommend you insert the following block before the #else in src/core/global/qglobal.h around line 89. #elif 1 #define Q_PROCESSOR_ARM 8 This will add a fall...

Re: CopperSpice on arm target

This modification moved it forward ... #elif defined(__ARM_ARCH) # define Q_PROCESSOR_ARM 1 ... Thanks for looking at this and proposing a solution. The code you added assumes there is only one version of ARM, whereas there are many variants and they will all have to be accounted for. Based on the ...

Re: QTextStream

Given this bug first appeared in Qt 4.5 https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-12055 Did CopperSpice fix it? Hopefully, in their "spare" time, the CopperSpice developers are removing/fixing the "single threadedness" of Qt. Only being able to paint in the main event loop is a severe flaw. As anyone o...

Re: CsPaintDemo crashes

Thanks for looking at CsPaint. We are currently not seeing these issues on any other system, and would like to investigate this further with you. Can you provide some additional debugging information? A description of the graphics hardware on your system (things like Integrated GPU, discrete GPU, dr...

Re: fromUnicode() documentation bug

The intent of the QTextCodec class is to convert between a QString and some specified text encoding. For Qt, the QString is in UCS-2, whereas for CopperSpice the QString is in UTF-8. In either case, the QByteArray that is returned by QTextCodec::fromUnicode will be in whatever encoding was requested...

Re: QStringParser::formatArg() for pointer

It looks like you want a way to convert pointer to its string representation as a hex address. The simplest way to do this in CopperSpice is to convert the pointer into an unsigned integer of the appropriate size:

Code: Select all

QStringParser::formatArg( msg, reinterpret_cast<quintptr>(item), 0, 16);

Re: Was there a change in QProcess::waitForReadyRead()?

In the API docs for readyRead() the signal is emitted "once every time new data is available for reading from the device." This signal does not indicate that all the data is available. If you want to know when the process has closed and all the data is available, connect the readChannelFinished() si...

Re: Where's the UI Designer?

You should be doing all of your development on Linux. Most Linux distros have QtCreator in their repos; no registration required. Please be aware this does not reflect the opinion or the philosophy of the CopperSpice team or any of its members. We encourage users to develop applications on any of o...

Re: GNU Assembler error building CsGui from 11.28 pull

You have listed a couple of possible reasons the string table may be too big. The space available in the string table is limited to 10 MB in the windows object file format. Using a shorter path may help, as well as turning on some level of optimization to reduce the number of symbols and template in...

Re: GNU Assembler error building CsGui from 11.28 pull

Thanks for sending the additional information. Our "CopperSpice Overview" documentation for building on Windows MinGW uses MSys and not MSys2. I can confirm when building CsGui there are a few large files and you must enable "big object files" as we have done in our CMake files. Looking at your erro...
